IndiGrid commissions its first BESS project at Dhule substation

IndiGrid has installed and commissioned their pilot project of solar panel bank coupled with battery energy storage systems (BESS) at their Dhule substation in Maharashtra, for meeting the substation’s auxiliary consumption requirement.

The BESS solution, coupled with solar generation, will not only reduce emissions but also act as a prototype for expanding the company’s presence in energy transition opportunities in the sector. This facility will also act as a test bed for augmenting the company’s capabilities to participate in energy transition opportunities in solar and BESS space. The company is looking forward to replicating similar systems across its other substations and reduce emissions of its operations, as the operations at this project stabilise.
